Festive Greetings, Ho Ho Ho etc
Christmas is definitely in the air, orders are hotting up and we are being kept busy packing orders. Continuing strong interest in the Cygnet journals is causing a few out of stock situations, but we hope to get any orders so delayed away in good time for Christmas.
The next Wild Swan book will be Peter Barnfield's wonderful pictorial record of Aberllefenni, at the printers now this will probably arrive with those relatives you were hoping not to see sometime over the Festive period. 64 pages, ISBN 9781912038701, £12.95.

Wild Swan books
The new Wild Swan booklist is now available, listing all available titles and containing details of some future and forthcoming books, I am dropping copies into all outgoing orders, but if you'd like a copy in the meantime then just send me an A5 SAE and I'll send you a copy by return.
LNWR Wagons Volume Three now has a comprehensive index and will be produced in the New Year, exact date to be confirmed.
I am otherwise adding additional Wild Swan information to www.wildswanbooks.co.uk the website for the publishing and promotional activities of Wild Swan Books Ltd.
In the New Year, limited stocks of two out of print titles will be available again, a branch line subject and a locomotive book.
The shop is situated on the east side of Bath 1 mile from the Guildhall. Bus No. 7 from Bath Bus Station, also calling at the centre (Post Office) will bring you straight here. Free on street parking is also available around Larkhall. Or a pleasant walk along the Kennet and Avon Canal from Bath Spa Station. From the rear of the station cross over the Halfpenny Bridge and turn left, then walk along on to the canal towpath and head out to Grosvenor Bridge from where you cross the A4 to reach Larkhall.
